5Dont worry about low-end systems, Apr 27, 2023
A lot of the reviews I read before buying this games said that you need the best computer to run it. This is not true. I have an eMac G4 1Ghz, ATI Radeon 9200 32Mb Video Card and a 17" screen. This game runs fine even at medium graphics settings. Although there are some choppy glitchy parts, I noticed this also occured on some of my other friends' higher-end computers on the same settings. I would recommend getting it for Xbox although it is better to be played with a mouse and keyboard rather than a game controller.

On another note, those parents who keep track of what their kids are playing, do not let the M rating of this game prevent you from letting your kids play it. Rent it for Xbox or buy it used and then sell it back if it doesn't suit your standards. I would compare this game to many T games that I have played, such as Golden Eye: Rogue Agent, Metroid Prime, the 007 James Bond games, Mercenaries, and Star Wars: Battlefront. Most of the explicit content of the game can be disabled or won't even be noticeable during gameplay. The main thing that I have noticed to be a problem is the blood on the ground. Just a tip: You can turn this off in the Options Menu by locating the choice called Decals and disabling it. Other than that, there isn't really any other content that should require an M rating.

Let me add one more thing. If by chance some paranoid parent thinks that their kid might enable anything that they have disabled, trust me. Unless your kid just lives to annoy you and make you mad, they wont because they will be so thankful to you for getting this game for them, they won't do anything that might have a chance of taking it away.

REMEMBER!!!!!! Runs fine on a G4 1 Ghz Mac with a ATI Radeon 9200 Video Card....(The video card is standard for any eMac or iMac G4 or G5

Play it long, Play it hard!!!!!

5Jay Wilman doesn't know what he's talking about!!!!!, Apr 26, 2023
This game is the coolest, most action-packed game to hit the market so far!!!! Although the other games he has mentioned aren't to be looked down upon, Halo is by far the best. If single player gets boring, thats why there is a thing called internet, so you can play against real people with real intelleigence and far better skills that the AI controlled Covenant Aliens.

Buy this game!!! If not for computer, than for Xbox!!!

And for those parents concerned with ESRB Ratings, this game is very similar to many T (Teen) Games and almost everything that would give this game an M (Mature) Rating can be disabled or are hardly noticeable to begin with.

5The better version of Halo, Mar 29, 2023
I have Halo for the Mac. I also have an Xbox, and I would have to say that the original Halo is better then Halo 2 and Halo on the Xbox. One of the reasons that makes Halo better on the mac is because of the multiplayer. You can join in on multiplayer brawls in slayer mode(which is the first to 25 kills)or you could do a nice enjoyable game of capture the flag. Also in multiplayer you get to use banshees,flamethrowers, and fuel rod guns which you couldn't use in the Halo for Xbox.

3eh...alright....but..., Mar 20, 2023
Eh, this game was ok. It became a little repetitive in the story mode, what with swarms of covenant attacking you. And yet...the AI was a little buggy....most of the time, they did not even notice that I was there. But, the best thing i have found is the Multi Player. Multi player is probably the best thing from the /entire/ game. But other than that. needs some work. Halo 2 was suppost to fix this, but it left people still wanting. I would still play Unreal Tournament 2K4 than Halo. Unreal looks better, playes faster on my G4 Al Powerbook (VRAM + RAM maxed), and has faster game play. Overall, it is a good game, but it still needs some fine tuning.

5Runs Fine On A Mac Ti, Mar 15, 2023
I have a Mac Titanium (circa October 2002) with an 800MHz processor, 60 GB hard drive, 1 gig of ram and a Radeon 7200 and I've found I'm able to turn on all the bells and whistles in the graphics in 800x600 mode and get gameplay virtually the same as on the X-Box.

In the highest resolution mode it can get a little jumpy but it's still pretty playable on my machine. It wouldn't run initially; I had to load the included "additional performance" stuff on the disc and load a new Radeon driver for 10.2.8 and it works just fine. I have no idea why all these people are having so much trouble with this game. My system's fairly run-of-the-mill, and it's a laptop, and in my case it works fine. I have no complaints.

It's also nice because in 800x600 it plays as well as it does on the X-Box and I can play it in the car. When you have TONS of enemies it can slow down a little bit but not much. The X-Box does this too. You're not sacrificing anything except the gamepad. I thought it was weird to play it without a control pad but I quickly got used to it, even just playing with my track pad.
